The Coloring Process
BREAK OUT THE COLORING SUPPLIES
When coloring your Art Therapy coloring book, you can use whatever art supplies you may already have around. However, we recommend colored pencils, fine tip pens, or gel pens. These seem to work best on the intricate details that are common to adult coloring pages.
To maximize the stress reduction, silence your cell phone, turn off the TV and computer. Do whatever it takes to get rid of any distractions that may interfere stilling your mind. Coloring is all about relaxing and getting lost in the moment, not about multi-tasking. However, for some it can be more relaxing to color while passively listening to music or watching a movie.
BEGIN TO STILL YOUR MIND
This step is essential to get the most out of coloring to reduce your stress. You must clear your mind and allow yourself to forget all your worries and responsibilities. Let all that go, just for the time being. It’s time to be a kid again and get ready to color! Let go of everything and live in the moment as much as possible.
